The Women travel to Rocester FC to face Burton Albion Women on Sunday (2pm).

Peterborough United Women’s are back on the road this weekend as they travel to Rocester FC to face Burton Albion Women in the FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands on Sunday (2pm).

After the perfect start to their National League adventure last Sunday, Posh Women were condemned to a narrow defeat in their first home fixture of the season on Wednesday night. Posh were beaten 1-0 despite an improved and positive performance in the second half, with the opportunity to rebuild momentum this weekend.

However, Burton Albion Women will be full of confidence heading into the fixture this weekend after securing their first win of the season, coming from behind to beat Long Eaton United 3-1 at Grange Park on Wednesday.

Team News

Posh will be without the services of Hollie Lewis once again this weekend after she suffered an ankle injury in the victory over Bedworth United last Sunday and is expected to be on the sidelines for a couple of weeks. Elizabeth Santiago and Sophie Powell also remain unavailable for this weekend. 

Midfielder Laura Dodwell has now been registered and will be involved in the squad for this weekend.

From the Gaffer

“We knew Holwell was never going to be an easy team to go play against, we probably made it a little easier in the first-half for them and didn’t play our normal football. In this league, if you let the opposition come on to you and play to their strengths, then, unfortunately, you’re likely to lose the game.

“I think every game in this league will be tough, especially if we don’t give our all right from the very start or we make little mistakes, we’re always going to get punished for it. It’s going to be competitive, but I think we can still go over there with confidence, knowing we finished the game on Wednesday strong and well, with lots of energy. So, we can still go there with the confidence of getting a result.”
